This week's color is...GREEN!
I just inherited a big box of random art supplies from my Uncle Richard. Included was a large package of Roting Artist Colors. I'd never heard of them, but the instruction sheet included with them made them look really cool. The applications are endless. Anyway, I had to try them out, so I got out the green and started mixing according to their mixing chart, painted pieces of tracing paper and then randomly cut out snowflake style leaves.
I decided the leaves were a bit too muted after I glued them to my journal, so I outlined them with a permanent dark green pen.
The result was better, but too stark. Back to the art box to try out some of the Carre' Nouvel Pastels.
(Did I say "I" inherited...I meant "we" :)
I applied the pastel over the ink to soften it and give the leaves a little glow. Addie started a whole new project.
Addie and I also experimented with some water and the pastel actually mixed with the water and gave a watercolor effect. Very fun indeed!
